FWIW: I voted for Nixon & attended LBJ's funeral :-) Unfortunately I was
on helicopter crew duty & after it was over a nasty storm blew in after
the funeral; nastiest & scariest takeoff since Vietnam that I'd
experienced when we flew out of the LBJ Ranch airstrip that day.

LOL: reminds me of the kid at school with the new Red Ball Jets
sneakers; thought he could run faster, jump higher & stop on a dime.
Unfortunately, the first day in gym class he tried the 'stop on a dime'
maneuver on the finely polished gym floor after "running faster"...
broke his nose. Funniest event of the school year :-)

My neighbor is a Windows sort of guy - so I'm pretty sure it was loaded
with the latest M$ stuff.

But I digress, we're now in Sounder territory... don't forget to scuff
up those sneakers a little first :-)

Here's another issue with the icon launcher; when I set an SeaMonkey
icon I always set it to open the email window first, then the browser.
The simple command to do this is 'seamonkey -mail -browser'. I just
tried this in kde4.1 by right clicking the SM icon in the panel and
changing the settings accordingly. That was over 10 minutes ago, and
this this is caught in an endless loop of "Updating system
configuration". True to the MS Windows named "System Tray/Task Bar" the
system is consumed by the loop and nothing else can be opened, not even
an existing terminal window. The only way to get out of it is to click
Cancel on the "Updating system configuration". Very much like the
Synaptic issue, everything seems to work afterwards, but very irritating.
